Larry Craig

It doesn’t always end well.

Larry Craig, a senator from Idaho who was critical of Clinton’s behavior, had his own problems when he was arrested on suspicion of lewd conduct in a men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The Idaho Statesman later ran an article that detailed alleged relationships Craig, who was married, had with other men. He was admonished by the U.S. Senate and did not seek re-election.
